Step One to buying a House : Save Marnee!

In a desperate bid to save money with the motivation of buying a new house and enjoying the first opportunity to create a home together, The Husband and I have been actively saving money. Our first step was to cut down our expenditure on FOOD- if you don't know us very well, let me tell you that quite a hefty fraction of our household income is dedicated monthly to that sector. ahahhaa
We have since changed our eating habits from restaurants (our commonly know in Malaysia as restorans) to hawker centres and foodcourts. We have tried The Gardens foodcourt (thrice for dinner this week) and also the Mid Valley foodcourt (for their renowned but disappointing bbqed seafood) for lunch on Saturday.
Today, after bringing the dogs to have some fun at doggie class at Taman Desa, we even tapao-ed charsiew noodles from the hawker centre there!! All for a good cause, don't you think? :D
This evening, we also headed to Bangsar pasar malum to buy some fresh seafood/vegetables etc at wholesale prices. This Maid will be cooking dinner for the whole week (if possible) so that the Sir and the Mum (me again) can eat at home and save money by playing wii and watching DVDs. aahhhahaha
